One of the very first moves by the incoming Biden administration was to remove an important report from the White House website. Not only did they simply make it disappear, but they took the active step to rescind it; in other words, it never existed!
So today, I have a homework assignment for you. Read it. Now. Click on this 1776 to access the report and then please come back to this article.
I hope you have read this wonderful report. I wish every kid across the land would be required to read and appreciate its contents. So, why is it now officially banned? Well, it reminds us how exceptional this country is, and how amazing our founding fathers were. The reader can only but shake his or her head when contemplating how incredible it was that the likes of Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, Hamilton, Franklin, Adams and others found each other, and despite their cultural differences, came together to form a more perfect union than had ever been formed before.
The 1776 Commission was formed by Donald Trump. Alas, that, if for no other reason, is why the incoming administration has relegated it to the dustbin of history. Well folks, no matter how many flies may rest on the figurative corpse of Donald Trump as he resides in his post-Presidential twilight zone, the fact is that good things DID happen in the past four years. Indeed, without re-litigating the myriad positive developments during the Trump years, let’s just remember that there are basically two firewalls standing between us and complete leftist legislative pandemonium. The first one is SCOTUS, and if and when various progressive cases make their way over the next few years all the way up to Justice Robert’s court, we can only hope the Constitution is upheld time and again. Second is Senator Manchin from West Virginia. No one controls the Senator. He will, however, be on the line time and again, as he has to decide whether he will support the extreme leftist legislation that will be headed his way from the House.
The Main Stream Media is reacting to the removal of the 1776 Commission Report in a very predictable fashion. Here is NBC’s take. You see, from the perspective of the Biden administration, and its massively lap-dog like media following, any attempt to teach what actually happened during our founding is an attempt to “REWRITE” history! From the perspective of the left, our real history is that we were founded by a mob of pseudo-intellectual racist hooligans who murdered everyone who got in the way of their quest for power, and who blithely rationalized the institution of slavery. THAT NARRATIVE IS IGNORANT. IT IS FALSE. IT IS DANGEROUSLY DISINGENUOUS FOR THIS REVISIONISM TO FIND ITS WAY INTO THE MAINSTREAM OF AMERICAN EDUCATION, BUT THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT IS HAPPENING.
George Washington, when leaving after two terms in office, wrote these words. ” The name ‘American’, which belongs to you (the people), in your national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of patriotism more than any appellation derived from local discriminations….here every portion of our country finds the most commanding motives for carefully guarding and preserving the Union of the whole.” Wow. For those students of history, you will know that is the concise and precise sentiment that drove Abraham Lincoln to focus solely on preserving the Union as he prosecuted the war between the states.
So, if you did not read the article, please do it now, and please download it and send it to your family and friends. We have a leadership and media elite that is hell-bent on discrediting our past; our amazing formation. We are a Republic unlike any other. But remember Benjamin Franklin’s response when asked by a friend what was the true result of the Constitutional Convention of 1787. His friend asked “Doctor, what have we got? A republic or a monarchy?” With a solemn look (and perhaps a twinkle in his eye), Franklin responded “A Republic, if you can keep it!”
I’m going to make it easy for you. Here (again!) is the link.
